There comes a time when the ‘piper must pay’ for the tunes he laid out. That is only a natural law and it has been repeating itself for as long as history can be remembered. It is a peculiar trait found on planet Earth and can be seen in the many avenues that life has taken.

Rome, the Mogul Empire, the Persian Empire, the rise and fall of this ism or that ism including the decline and fall of the Islamic Empire (or the four Righteous Caliphs) are some small examples of some ‘thousand year wonders’ that didn’t quite make it.

So what modern nation is keeping the light burning and the hungry wolves, though still very much active, at bay at least philosophically?

Rising up after WW 2 to become the dominant power perceived by most of the world and hosting this idea in a kind of United Nations candy-land setting whose ‘greenbacks’ meant something that the whole of the ruling nations had to sit up and take notice, America, rightfully or wrongfully, became a beacon of so-called reason and affluence.

So America acted as a pack leader and democratic symbol or at least one would think that way as American cash became king! Yes, but to each there comes a season and even the very successful dinosaurs soon found out that being dominant doesn’t mean forever!

And call not, besides ALLAH, on another god. There is no god but HIM. Everything (that exists) will perish except HIS own Face. To HIM belongs the Command, and to HIM will you (all) be brought back.  Quran (28:88)

Thus when they {the women} fulfil their term appointed, either take them back on equitable terms or part with them {as in divorce} on equitable terms; and take for witness two persons from among you, endued with justice, and establish the evidence (as) before ALLAH. Such is the admonition given to him who believes in ALLAH and the Last Day. And for those who fear ALLAH, HE (ever) prepares a way out.  Quran (65:2)

Taking a look at America now, one will find that lunacy has been on the rise coupled with fantasy building, hero worship, aggregated selfishness, vain desires and a sense of imperial greatness by hosting various myths about itself. This can be seen in several ways but the so-called ‘MAGA’ movement and self preening conservative (holier than thou) approach has left America in shambles. These have become seeds of destruction for America – one which it will not be able to recover from until the Second Coming.

And the warning signs are all over the place in the socio-economic sphere of contentedness or the lack thereof from its citizens. What America is doing is chewing itself to pieces and its superior standing in the world is going to take a hit. Such a hit that it will not be able to recover its former position!

But things are in balance before the fall so that the ugly right is offset by the ugly left (as in politico speech) and the collection of souls for each side is taking place in such a way as not to be noticeable. So, expect this country and all that would follow suit to be critically punished or reduced to a shadow of its former ‘glory’.

The best way to do that is through drastic ‘Land Changes’ as well as climatic changes. Climatic changes represent the slow strangulation of a people while massive land changes represent the death of the country by taking away its vital infrastructure and human resources. By putting its eggs in only a few baskets, it becomes easier to dismantle a country and bring it down low.

By having a country decay from the inside, it does not become so noticeable and therefore the more complex the country the greater the fall! And as America achieved what is called the ‘Dunya’ success through illegal interest practices (fast growth but no real soundness thereof); the bubble grew beyond its capacity and will eventually explode causing a chaotic event by which some people will be willing to kill their neighbors for a scrap of food.

The climate, the land that one walks upon and the sky above are all in ALLAH’s control so how can man survive and rebound except to go back the way of doing things from of old which as the dinosaurs found out would not be permitted. Therefore, the Earth shall be inherited by the righteous until they {the last ones on the ‘totem pole’} become infected and the beat goes on.

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever {then die before moving onto Judgment Day}.  Psalm (37:29)

For the evildoers will be cut off, but those who {have a real} hope in the LORD will inherit the land. Psalm (37:9)

Blessed are the meek {putting their simple and humble trust in their CREATOR LORD}, for they shall inherit the earth {for a time set by HIM WHO controls time}.                        Matthew (5:5)

America is a shining example of ‘capitalism on a hill’. And things like this must be when one takes into account the hadiths talking about those who desire the ‘good things in life’ and will get some of their desire but will never smell the scent of Paradise (hadith). So, one must have that condition so that souls can be raised up in that way in order to achieve the reward that shall be given them. Otherwise, where is the forethought, the foreknowledge of that particular soul? And where is the control, the justice and even the PROMISE FROM THE LORD?

And because no soul is mistreated or punished beyond its level with things being totally just and applicable for reasons that ALLAH ALONE KNOWS FOR SURE, we can see the value in Quranic verse (2:256) in that it gets every good that it earns and receives also every bad that it earns.

In order for that to happen a ‘term of appointment’ must be handed out which gives the soul the opportunity with ALLAH’s Permission to either right the ship or sink it!

And those who followed {the people who made the wrong pathway look glamorous} would say: “If only we had one more chance, we would clear ourselves of them, as they have cleared themselves of us.” Thus will ALLAH show them (The fruits of) their deeds as (nothing but) regrets. Nor will there be a way for them out of the Fire.  Quran (2:167)

See how garbage tries to separate itself as if those standard bearers would say: “Don’t blame us for YOUR WEAKNESSES! Such are the people who dismissed the GOD as being either their own personal pet or some buffoon-type entity.

Another Law for this planet is the Law of growth and then diminishing returns such that:

Set forth to them the similitude of the life of this world: it is like the rain which WE send down from the skies: the earth’s vegetation absorbs it {grows verdantly green} but soon it becomes dry stubble which the winds do scatter: it is only ALLAH WHO PREVAILS OVER ALL THINGS. Quran (18:45)

This teeter-totter effect starts slowly and then picks up steam as divisions become more pronounced. The effect is accumulative and keeps going until the original system becomes busted.

The final result is a broken system that has to be replaced once the proverbial dust settles. In this particular case, the old ways of doing things will be replaced by another system as the Christ-light will usher in a new Islamic Wave of harmonious worship and practice.

And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him {Jesus} before his death {term of appointment ends}; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them {those who refused to believe in the Way of Truth}   Quran (4:159)

All this goody-goody stuff sounds great but realistically human determination fluctuates all the time due to the ‘soul-types’ entering into life. Hence, the degradation of the system being followed and then replaced by another ‘system’.

And this is an Earthly thing and can be shown by the collapse of the Christ-kingdom (often Biblically represented as the 1,000 year kingdom) which is mentioned in hadith literature. Namely, when the last soul that has a mustard seed of faith in it has passed away, then comes the evil kingdom ruled by Satan and his followers which has been expressed adequately in hadith literature. Then comes the Judgment Day and the sorting out of souls!

So, yes patterns and cycles are represented in this Earthly sphere of existence and that goes a long way in having some type of sense introduced into why we were born, why we must die and why we must be given a chance to show our own choice as to the pattern we choose to represent.

All of this is guided and controlled by the WILL of ALLAH such that ‘on no soul is there placed a burden it did not warrant’:

On no soul does ALLAH place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns and it suffers every ill that it earns… Quran (2:286) – with the caveat that ALLAH’s MERCY outweighs HIS WRATH and that HE is MOST GENEROUS in uplifting mankind than in punishing them provided that they turn to HIM in truth and sincerity!

As there is a great distinction between light and darkness, there is also a great distinction between truth and falsehoods. It is when people cannot distinguish between them that the proverbial wires get crossed and havoc ensues.

So what is the outlook for America? Not so good for sure! One can see some of the happenings of the future for this once great nation when one looks at the problems with the woeful country of Haiti. This is partly in response to the willingness for those who desire to carry, own or put their hands on weapons which have caused many deaths.

The biggest problem is with the dependency on modern infrastructure which will be under attack through various land changes or geographical upheavals. Depending upon smooth services and helpful machines will cause a great deal of stress when they are put out of commission.

Therefore, a people grown accustomed to cushy services will find life and the human soul put under a terrific strain and with the ‘dog eat dog’ mentality shown by many who lack self-respect and self-discipline will cause the ‘law of the jungle’ to consume many who try to survive at all costs.

But this is about only one country whereas the world will be affected in a myriad of ways. Hence, before the second coming of Jesus (pbh), the great terror the Anti-christ and before him many wars will breakout. This then will provide the opening for the Gog and Magog to sweep across vast territories in their murderous rampage before they too will be destroyed in a single day.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you {the believer} up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

And many false prophets shall rise {up}, and shall deceive many.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold {because their hearts have become constricted}.

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

And this gospel {Message of Islam/Good News Message} of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then {after certain years} shall the end come.  Matthew (24:6-14)

{But before this} And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! Matthew (24:19)

For then shall be Great Tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake {the true believers} those days shall be shortened.                         Matthew (24:21-22)

Then comes the real change, the sweeping away of the old order and the bringing in of the new order with the result that there will be one peoples and one religion worshiping the ONE GOD. And this will result in a very different Earth being both blessed and productive while it lasts as is recorded in hadith material:

It was narrated from An-Nawwas bin Sam’an, who said: “The Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) mentioned the Dajjal one morning, he belittled him and mentioned his importance until we thought that he might be amidst a cluster of date-palms.” He said: “We departed from the presence of the Messenger of ALLAH (pbh), then we returned to him, and he noticed that (concern) in us. So he said: ‘What is wrong with you?'” We said: ‘O Messenger of ALLAH! You mentioned the Dajjal this morning, belittling him, and mentioning his importance until we thought that he might be amidst a cluster of the date-palms.’ He said: ‘It is not the Dajjal that I fear for you. If he were to appear while I am among you, then I will be his adversary on your behalf. And if he appears and I am not among you, then each man will have to fend for himself. And ALLAH will take care of every Muslim after me. He is young, with curly hair, his eyes protruding, resembling someone from ‘Abdul-Uzza bin Qatan. Whoever among you sees him, then let him recite the beginning of Surah Ashab Al-Kahf. ‘”He said: ‘He will appear from what is between Ash-Sham and Al-‘Iraq, causing devastation toward the right and toward the left. O worshippers of ALLAH! Hold fast!'” We said: ‘O Messenger of ALLAH! How long will he linger on the earth?’ He said: ‘Forty days, a day like a year, a day like a month, a day like a week, and the remainder of his days are like your days.'” We said: ‘O Messenger of ALLAH! Do you think that during the day that is like a year, the Salat of one day will be sufficient for us?’ He said: ‘No. You will have to estimate it.’ We said: ‘O Messenger of ALLAH! How fast will he move through the earth?’ He said: ‘Like a rain storm driven by the wind. He will come upon a people and call them, and they will deny him, and reject his claims. Then he will leave them, and their wealth will follow him. They will awaken in the morning with nothing left. Then he will come upon a people and call them, and they will respond to him, believing in him. So he will order the Heavens to bring rain, and it shall rain, and he will order the land to sprout, and it will sprout. Their cattle will return to them with their coats the longest, their udders the fullest and their stomachs the fattest.’ He said: ‘Then he will come upon some ruins, saying to it: “Bring me your treasures!” He will turn to leave it, and it will follow him, like drone bees. Then he will call a young man, full of youth, and he will strike him with the sword cutting him into two pieces. Then he will call him, and he will come forward with his face beaming and laughing. So while he is doing that, Eisa bin Mariam, (pbh), will descend in eastern Damascus at the white minaret, between two Mahrud, with his hands on the wings of two angels. When he lowers his head, drops fall, and when {he} raises it, gems like pearls drop from him.’ He said: ‘His (the Dajjal’s) breath does not reach anyone but he dies, and his breath reaches as far as his sight.’*He said: ‘So he pursues him (the Dajjal) and he catches up with him at the gate of Ludd where he kills him.’ He said: ‘So he remains there as long as ALLAH Wills.’ He said: ‘Then ALLAH reveals to him: “Take my slaves to At-Tur, for I have sent down some creatures of MINE which no one shall be able to kill.'” He said: ‘ALLAH dispatches Ya’juj and Ma’juj, and they are as ALLAH said: They swoop down from every mount.’ “He said: ‘The first of them pass by the lake of Tiberias, drinking what is in it. Then the last of them pass by it saying: “There was water here at one time.” They travel until they reach a mountain at Bait Al-Maqdis. They will say: “We have killed whoever was in the earth. Come! Let us kill whoever is in the skies.” They will shoot their arrows into the Heavens, so ALLAH will return their arrows to them red with blood. Eisa bin Mariam and his Companions {will} be surrounded, until the head of a bull on that day would be better to them than a hundred Dinar to one of you today.’ He (pbh) said: “Eisa will beseech ALLAH, as will his companions.’ He said: ‘So ALLAH will send An-Naghaf down upon their necks. In the morning they will find that they have all died like the death of a single soul.’ He said: “Eisa and his companions will come down, and no spot nor hand-span can be found, except that it is filled with their stench, decay and blood. So Eisa will beseech ALLAH, as will his companions.’ So ALLAH will send upon them birds like the necks of Bactrian (milch) camels.’ They will carry them off and cast them into an abyss. The Muslims will burn their bows, arrows and quivers for seventy {seven} years.’” He (pbh) said: ‘ALLAH will {then} send upon them a rain which no house of hide nor mud will bear. The earth will be washed, leaving it like a mirror. Then it will be said to the earth: “bring forth your fruits and return your blessings.” So on that day, a whole troop would eat a pomegranate and seek shade under its skin. Milk will be so blessed that a large group of people will be sufficed by one milking of a camel. And that a tribe will be sufficed by one milking of a cow, and that a group will be sufficed by the milking of sheep. While it is like that, ALLAH will send a wind which grabs the soul of every believer, leaving the remainder of the people copulating publicly like the copulation of donkeys. Upon them the Hour shall begin.'”  (Tirmidhi)

*This hadith has a weakness in it when compared to the Book of Revelation from what the Christians call their ‘New Testament’. The Book of Revelation would attribute the action of the ‘breath’ coming from Jesus (pbh) and not the Dajjal. This would translate from other hadith material into the idea that the Antichrist’s corrupt followers {his small army (Daniel chapter 11) /or 70,000 Jews wearing Persian Shawls – hadith} of the Dajjal will be slain by the tongue or breath of Jesus (pbh): ‘Now out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should strike the nations. And he himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and Wrath of Almighty GOD’.  Revelation (19:15)

The other weakness is the amount of time whereby the Believers collect the ‘war implements’ of the Gog and Magog. The Book of Ezekiel in the Old Testament puts the time at seven yearsand not seventy years and that would be a more practical number.

Because the Prophet (pbh) declared the advent of the hour to be close by the action of comparing the size of his two fingers with each other, it is believed that the start of these chaotic events will happen shortly and that the Antichrist’s appearance is perhaps less than two decades away. ALLAH KNOWS BEST about these matters.

Sahl ibn Sa‘d reported that the Messenger of ALLAH (pbh) said: “My advent and the Hour are like these,” pointing with his two fingers.   (Bukhari and Muslim)

And So It Goes
